The Cincinnati City Council on Wednesday approved a resolution supporting marriage equality in Ohio.

The resolution was favored by six of the council's seven members.

Councilman Charlie Winburn, a Republican, said that he could not support the resolution because the Ohio Constitution defines marriage as a heterosexual union.

“Until someone can change it, the state of Ohio, I think this decision ought to be made by the voters in the state of Ohio,” Winburn said. “Defining marriage between one man and one woman, that's how it stands in Ohio now.”

Other Ohio cities which have approved similar resolutions include Athens and Columbus.

In November, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati overturned a lower court's ruling striking down Ohio's restrictive marriage ban as unconstitutional. Plaintiffs appealed to the Supreme Court, which will hear the case on April 28, with a ruling expected in June.
